Wide Eyes

empty eyes

dull damaged mirrors

poor reflections

eyes shout

silent prayers

muted when shut



eyes wide open

pennies cover the windows

copper green are the eyes

white eyes tell you

to ease the pain



slumbering with one eye open

eyes wide shut

shot between the eyes

blackness

point blank

right between the eyes

love is blind

even with open eyes
